Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Soham

When will exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Soham and do I need to be at the solicitors branch?

If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Soham you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the firms we recommend supply a national conveyancing service and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Soham)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Soham. My lender is Virgin

Virgin have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 9/7/2019, the requirements read as follows :

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Soham conveyancing practitioners were appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Nationwide?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Nationwide done the survey? Have you informed Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

The mortgage over my property is with TSB for my property in Soham. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform TSB?

Your original mortgage agreement with TSB will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of TSB’s mortgage conditions. It may be that TSB will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact TSB directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a TSB conveyancing panel lawyer.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Soham. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Soham property lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.
